Lorraine Schiller's Profile

About

My name is Lorraine and I have been creating artwork since I can remember! I have developed skills in many mediums including watercolors, acrylic and oil paints, pen and ink and printmaking. It was after getting married and moving across the country that I began pursuing art on a more full time basis.

Over the past few years I have honed in on what inspires me the most which is the beauty I find in flowers using oil paints. I'm drawn to flowers because of their beauty, color and diversity, giving me an endless source of inspiration for my work! I also love the idea that flowers have been used for centuries as a means of communication, there was even a language created using flowers called floriography- using flowers symbolically to convey different feelings and emotions.

I'm drawn to flowers because of their beauty, color and diversity, giving me an endless source of inspiration for my work! I also love the idea that flowers have been used for centuries as a means of communication, there was even a language created using flowers called floriography- using flowers symbolically to convey different feelings and emotions. I feel art and flowers both exist as wonderful forms of communicating something deep, without words, but with images. I have married these two as my own form of expression.

I use a glazing technique that requires many layers of oil paint built one on top of another. This technique causes the colors to really pop, and dimension to come through the work. I strive to create art that is bight, bold and beautiful in a unique style that is sure to make a statement and create a positive atmosphere!

I am happy to offer canvas prints of my oil paintings, as each original takes me a long time to create and this allows more people to have these works of art in their home! If you would like to ask about a different size or request a custom flower painting, please send me a message!
